Encode profiles are available for all AIO models, as well as certain ProVue models, that have an active IP Encoding license. Encode profiles allow you to select from stock presets, and to create your own presets for encoding from Input sources and for IP Output encoding with the IP Output option.
Recording presets include:
MPEG2 – HD:
MPEG2 – SD:
H264 – HD/SD:
Additional presets for IP Output include CableLabs H.264 SD and HD samples. Click on the name of any preset to see the full encoding profile details including help for the meaning of each field.
The default record profile selections will display as a green check in the corresponding SD and HD Default columns. Recording allows for a separate default profile for SD sources and HD sources. To set your default recording profiles, click the gray check action in the corresponding SD and HD Default columns. Note that recording profile will follow the native source resolution. If an SD source is detected at the start of the record, encoding will use the SD Default. Likewise, if an HD source is detected at the start of the record, encoding will use the HD Default.
To delete an existing profile, click the delete action. There are non-deletable, non-editable factory presets that can be used directly, or can be copied for convenience to use as a baseline for customized profiles. To copy an existing profile, click the copy action. To edit an existing profile, click the edit action. To create a new profile, click the add action. In each of these cases, you will be presented with the Encode Profile form.
Choose the desired Encode Profile settings. The Encode Profile fields are as follows, with detailed help menu items available for each field.
Click Save to save your changes.
With the IP Output option, when configuring the Output, select the Encoding Profile from the available profiles.
